What is Web 2.0?

Ever since i started with Web Development, I have been constantly coming across this WEB2.0 word..be it websites, blogs or online pop ups. I neglected it for a long time until finally decided to read about it.
Well here's a few things i found out about WEB 2.0
1. Its not a technology or Web Standard. It's just a way of how new Web Applications are developed.
2. Most of the Web 2.0 buzz has been related to Google Technology as its constantly making big progress towards making Web Applications more and more like desktop apps.
3.Web 2.0 is quite an old term and has been regularly re-phrased.
4. Use of technology such as AJAX, Silverlight, Flash etc.
They have some good stuff written about WEB 2.0 on Wikipedia. You might want to see for learning more.
So this WEB 2.0 term really doesn't mean much to us developers as long as we keep our imaginations flying and showing our creative work....May be as i write this blog post some extra minded people may even be talking about WEB 3.0, 4.0 ,5.0 ......
